Dear team,

 

When I look at following configuration guide for Linux OS, it explains about how to Kill the HDDL Plugin backend service (hddldaemon) and reset VPUs.

Could you provide guide how I can do the same "kill HDDL plugin and reset VPU" for Windows OS, too?

Troubleshooting

Unable to run inference with the MYRIAD Plugin after running with the HDDL Plugin

Running inference with the MYRIAD Plugin after running with the HDDL Plugin is failed with the following error generated:

  E: [ncAPI] [ 965618] [MainThread] ncDeviceOpen:677 Failed to find a device, rc: X_LINK_ERROR

 

Possible solutions (use one of the following):

  • Reboot the host system and run with the MYRIAD Plugin
  • Kill the HDDL Plugin backend service (hddldaemon) and reset all Intel® Movidius™ VPUs before running an application that uses the MYRIAD Plugin:

kill -9 $(pidof hddldaemon autoboot)

pidof hddldaemon autoboot # Make sure none of them is alive

source /opt/intel/openvino/bin/setupvars.sh

${HDDL_INSTALL_DIR}/bin/bsl_reset

Hi, Hyun-Kyu L.

There's no such similar solid recommendation for Windows (except rebooting the host), but you can try to find something related to HDDL in the Windows Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del) -> Processes section, and then do "End task" on it.
Then use IEI Reset software that being installed per this guide https://docs.openvinotoolkit.org/latest/_docs_install_guides_movidius_setup_guide.html#iei_reset_software_installation

Best regards, Max.
